Hi, I’m Lynette Johnson and I teach social studies here at Bridge. I love history, government, geography, economics – all the awesome social studies stuff. It is so much fun to see kids make connections between what we talk about in class and their lives. I have a Bachelor's degree in history teaching from BYU and a masters degree in American history from the University of Utah. I spent nine years teaching high school history and English before becoming a stay-at-home mom. Now I get to teach two of my four kids and a whole bunch of your kids at Bridge.
Besides teaching, I love learning new things and being outdoors. My favorite ways to learn are reading, listening to podcasts, and asking questions. Outside I enjoy hiking and camping with my family, running with my husband, and watching for unusual things in nature. I also love to travel. I have a goal to visit all the National Parks and all fifty states.(I’m currently at thirty-nine states). I love that as we learn and explore we can feel part of a larger community. I hope that my social studies students leave my class with a better understanding of their place in the world and how they can make a difference.
